Yesterday I had mother/daughter time because my sons spent an extra night with their Dad. My son’s Dad works nights so it’s rare for him to be able to have our full time school son more than every other weekend, which means if he gets a night off due to a holiday he will usually pick up an extra day with the boys. This happened with Memorial Day, my daughter was scheduled to be home around four and my son’s would be gone that night so we planned for some mom/daughter time which led us to go out for ice cream cones.
Little did I know that I would be feeding a puppet, seriously, below is a picture of my daughter’s puppet pretending to eat mint chocolate chip ice cream in a waffle cone. We spoil everyone around here I suppose.
This is Emu, a marianette puppet, do not ask me how to spell that because I cannot. It is a puppet on strings that can be made to look like it is really walking and it is sort of creepy but hey my daughter wanted to bring it along so she did and she shared her ice cream too. No puppet was hurt during this process, nor was the puppet able to get messy because she didn’t, as per my orders, get ice cream close enough to the puppets fur.
Next request was that we bring our pug home a doggie sundae, this place makes Doggie Sundaes. I was thinking the sundae would melt on way home but that didn’t stop my daughter from wanting to get our spoiled pug a sundae. The sundae which is seriously called Doggie Sundae includes soft serve vanilla ice cream with two dog biscuits on the side. Our dog Jenny ate it right up and sounded like a pig while snorting and munching down her Doggie Sundae.
So there you have it, when we get ice cream cones… EVERYONE gets ice cream cones.
